This course explores how to use LibGDX to build 2D games that run anywhere, from web browsers to mobile devices. We start with simple drawings, and then turn to simple animations, physics, and user input handling. Finally, we create a full game, called Icicles, where icicles rain down from the top of the screen, and the player must dodge them using the arrow keys or by tilting their phone.

Canvas.net Free Closed [?] Education Adult & Continuing Education MOOC

The New York Times said 2012 was "the year of the MOOC" and EDUCAUSE said MOOCs have �the potential to alter the relationship between learner and instructor and between academe and the wider community.� Many elite universities are offering Massive Open Online Courses, but most colleges and educators are unsure about what MOOCs are and if they are worthwhile. Can an "open" course offered at no cost to a very large number of participants who receive no institutional credit be a worthwhile venture for a college? And can a course be effective if participants and course materials are distributed across the Web? In this class, we will briefly cover the history and development of MOOCs. Participants will engage in discussions about why institutions offer these courses, and the possible benefits to both schools and students. This four-week course will examine MOOCs from four perspectives: as a designer building a course, as an instructor, as a student, and as an institution offering and supporting a course.

As Parcerias Público-Privadas (PPPs) tornaram-se um instrumento essencial para o crescimento produtivo, econômico e social dos países da América Latina e Caribe. Ao desenvolver e programar as PPPs observam-se restrições nas capacidades técnicas dos responsáveis, em especial no setor público.

Para preencher esta lacuna, IDBx desenvolveu este curso, o primeiro MOOC disponível em Português para aprender a planejar, projetar e implementar PPPs para projetos de desenvolvimento na América Latina e no Caribe.

Este curso busca dividir experiências de instituições internacionais líderes com a finalidade de ajudar a diminuir lacunas de conhecimento na utilização efetiva das PPPs, oferecendo ideias, soluções e lições aprendidas para lidar com os desafios ou restrições às capacidades técnicas e administrativas do setor público da região. As lições contidas no MOOC se aplicam a diferentes setores como infraestrutura, saúde, educação, banda larga e setor fiscal, levando em conta contextos nacionais de vários países da região, incluindo Peru, México, Colômbia e Brasil. 

Para este efeito, o curso coloca à disposição dos participantes leituras selecionadas, vídeos, tutoriais de análises e outros recursos de aprendizagem.

O curso é baseado nos conteúdos do Guia de Referência sobre Parcerias Público-Privadas (PPPs) versão 2.0, desenvolvido e publicado em 2014 pelo BID, Banco Mundial (BM) e Banco Asiático de Desenvolvimento (ADB).

A elaboração deste curso foi financiada pelo Programa Especial para o Desenvolvimento Institucional (SPID). Mais informações em  SPID.

Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) have become an essential instrument for productive, economic, and social growth in Latin American countries and the Caribbean. However, when developed and implemented, those responsible for PPPs' implementation have had limited technical capacity, particularly in the public sector.

In order to address this need, IDB has developed the first MOOC available in Portuguese, to learn how to plan, design, and implement PPPs for development projects in Latin America and the Caribbean.

This course seeks to share the experiences of leading international institutions to contribute to close the knowledge gaps for the effective use of PPPs, providing ideas, solutions, and lessons learned to face the challenges or limitations of technical and administrative capacity in the region's public sector. The lessons from this course are applicable to different sectors such as infrastructure, health, education, broad band, fiscal sector, and take into consideration national contexts from various countries in the region, including Perú, México, Colombia and Brasil.

For this goal, this course presents selected readings, videos, tutorials and other knowledge products.

The course is based on the Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) Reference Guide Version 2.0, developed and published in 2014 by the IDB, World Bank (WB) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

The preparation of this course was financed by the Special Program for Institutional Development (SPID) of the Inter-American Development Bank. For more information visit the development,8478.html">SPID website.

Perhaps no story is as essential to get right as the history of capitalism. Nearly all of our theories about promoting progress come from how we interpret the economic changes of the last 500 years. This past decade’s crises continue to remind us just how much capitalism changes, even as its basic features—wage labor, financial markets, private property, entrepreneurs—endure. While capitalism has a global history, the United States plays a special role in that story. This course will help you to understand how the United States became the world’s leading economic power, revealing essential lessons about what has been and what will be possible in capitalism’s on-going revolution.


FAQ

Do I need to have taken economics before?
No. Though there will be discussion of economic ideas, professors will assume no prior economic training.

I am not familiar with American history, but I am interested in how capitalism works. Can I take this course?
Yes. We will have relevant links to helpful background material for each section that should make it possible for those with no knowledge of U.S. history to take the class.

Is this class about economic thought like Smith, Marx, Ricardo, Hayek, etc.?
This class is primarily about what actually happened rather than theories of what happened. While we will touch on important economic thinkers, this class will focus more on the people and institutions that developed capitalism in the United States. If you want to know how capitalism works and came about, this is the class for you.

Will certificates be awarded?
Yes. If you complete the work and achieve a passing grade in the course, you can earn a Honor Code Certificate, which indicates that you have completed the course successfully. Certificates will be issued by edX under the name of CornellX, designating the institution from which the course originated.

What will help me complete this course?
We have found that the best help you can get is other people in the real world. Enlist friends, co-workers, family, and other people to take the class with you. Ask your friends on Facebook or Twitter. Arrange a time during a lunch break or an evening to discuss the week’s videos and readings. Think of this “MOOC club” like a book club! You will get more out of the material and be much more likely to finish.

I want to read more about American Capitalism!
Professors Baptist and Hyman just wrote a course reader expressly for this MOOC (though it is also being taught at Cornell University).

Containing every reading from the MOOC, as well as additional readings from leading scholars (that could not be had for free!), this course reader provides the student with more background for every topic.

Each reading is introduced and discussed by the professors. Each reading, as well, has additional questions for the student to discuss with their friends.

Are there prerequisites?

This course is designed to be accessible for people without a strong background in U.S. history. Nevertheless, we make reference to many people, locations, events, or developments that may be unfamiliar to some students. Below are sources for additional information.

Wikipedia is a very helpful source for a quick definition or description of most of the material in this course. It can help you answer most factual questions you might have.

Digital History is a website that can serve as an online text book if you need a stronger grounding in U.S. history.

For more difficult questions, you can post a question on the discussion board where your fellow students may be able to help you.

An e-book has been designed for this class, containing all the readings and some additional essays by leading scholars in the history of capitalism, including the professors. American Capitalism: A Reader [Kindle Edition] Amazon.com.
